Jason Momoa Returns To Atlantis
After the hiatus that COVID-19 implied (this year sifted by Zack Snyder’s Justice League and the premiere of The Suicide Squad … without this having an impact on a large collection for Warner), DC has erected 2022 as a year full of great additions to your universe.
There’s The Batman (released March 4 ), Black Adam ( July 29 ), The Flash ( November 4 ), and there’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom ( December 16).), and all of them have had a presence during the recently held DC FanDome.
However, as some have their development more advanced than others, it has been The Batman, Black Adam and The Flash which have allowed a trailer consisting of scenes from the film, while the sequel to Aquaman has had to conform (al same as Shazam! Fury of the Gods ) with a behind-the-scenes video.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom stands as a continuation of the Aquaman that James Wan directed in 2018 and that became the highest grossing film in DC history, surpassing The Dark Knight: The Legend Rises .
Such a success had to generate new exploits, and even if its horror spin-off (originally titled The Trench ) was canceled, Warner has had no problem with Wan returning to direct the direct sequel, maintaining the role of Jason Momoa as the King of Atlantis in the company of Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson or Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, which appears in the DC FanDome preview in the form of eye-catching sketches that show us his new and improved Black Manta uniform.
In fact, the trailer is barely made up of images from the film itself, but of designs and illustrations that show us elements that will appear in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom . Also, of course, several statements from the team, agreeing in their intention that the sequel surpasses the show that the original already proposed. You can see the trailer below these lines, and wonder again what the “lost kingdom” in the title alludes to if, from the looks of it, Atlantis is still fully locatable.
